OA 12.0x. Is midaemon used for OS performance monitoring?Open in a New Window


As i understand from OA 12 documentation, midaemon is used only by ttd now.
Oacore does not use midaemon for performance monitoring. Only for storing transaction montiroing to oacore.

Also midaemon is not used by perfd (real time monitoring) or OBR.

So if i do not plan to monitor application transaction i want to disable midaemon and ttd, but i do not found instruction how can i do it.
If i stop ovpa through ovpa config file and then start Control daemon, some daemon (may be oacore) run midaemon.

How i can disable midaemon and ttd permanently?

Close an event with reference of event idOpen in a New Window

Dear experts,

I have a requirement where i need to close an event. reference of this event's id i get in another event.

i.e Event E2 has title T2="EventID of EX" and EX has to be closed.

one way i have figured out is use an EPI script create filter for E2 event, read T2 of it and then run c:\HPBSM\bin\opr-close-events.bat -id "value of T2" -force and EX will be closed.

but i see below mentioned warnings from the Help Section of this command

  - The event processing might stop for some time after tool finishes execution.

  - The 'close event' updates will not be forwarded to other servers. The web-se
    may be used instead, if forwarding is needed.

So i can not proceed with this approach.

and event.setState will not help either as this will close the Event E2 and not EX.

I checked HP Live Network but nothing related found.

I can think of if it is possible somehow to create event object based on event id? then may be i can write a groovy script which read the arguments. pass the T2 as argument and then groovy has the event EX based on ID for further processing.

I have checked Class OprEvent but could not figure out if this is possible.

has anyone idea if class OprEvent will work in this case? any other approach which you can think of?

Help in this regard is greatly appreciated.

OMi 9.26 SM9 Integration - Append Ticket Number to AnnotationOpen in a New Window


I have integration between HPOM Linux, OMi and SM9. I have events forwarding from OML to OMi and if event passes selection criteria is forwarded to SM9 for incident using integration groovy script sm:ServiceManagerAdapter. The incident number is passed back to OMi event as External ID. My issue is I want to also send the ticket number back to OML but the API does not sync External ID. My thought is to update the SM groovy script to add the ticket number as an annotation as well as populate the External ID. That way annotations get synchronised back to OML as part of the standard API structure and everyone is happy. I have added annotations manually to OMi event and these update the OML ticket. Has anyone tried this before with the SM adapter, is it better to use another groovy script to do this or is it done from SM side? Any help on this appreciated.

Performance Comparison graphsOpen in a New Window

Hi All,

I would like to create a new comparison graph that shows the same CPU utilization metric collected from SiteScope for several different CI's that all have the same template applied in SiS. When I try to do this and design the graph, I assign the Data Source (SiteScope (direct)), Class Name (CPU), and Metric Name (utilization), but leave Instance Name blank. I go back to the dashboard and have "no data points." If I go back in and select a specific instance, the graph only displays the metric for that instance. Is there something obvious I'm missing on how to set up these comparison graphs or is something wrong here?
